Morning Prayer

Music for the 18th Sunday after Pentecost
*Johann Gottfried Walther's chorale variations on "Let thy Blood in mercy poured" (#313 in Hymnal 1982)

18th Sunday After Pentecost
Almighty and everlasting God, you are always more ready to hear than we to pray, and to give more than we either desire or deserve: Pour upon us the abundance of your mercy, forgiving us those things of which our conscience is afraid, and giving us those good things for which we are not worthy to ask, except through the merits and mediation of Jesus Christ our Savior; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Prayer in a time of calamity
O most mighty and merciful God, in this time of hurricanes, fires, protests and viruses, we flee to you for succor. Deliver the people, we beseech you, from their peril; give strength and skill to all those who minister to the needy; prosper the means of their safety; and grant that, perceiving how frail and uncertain our life is, we all may apply our hearts unto your heavenly wisdom which leads to eternal life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

In Christ's Love,


The Rev. Peter M. Carey, Rector
St. Mary's Episcopal Church - Cathedral Road
